Traveling is one of the best ways to relax, escape the daily grind and see new sights. Unfortunately, time flies when you’re having fun, and you’re back home before you know it.

But while your trip may be over, you can keep the travel vibe alive at home by incorporating colors, textures and accessories into your bathroom that remind you of your vacation.

Here’s how you can bring travel-inspired bathroom design ideas back home.

Beach-Style Bathroom Design

One of the best moments at the beach is the feeling of warm sand between your toes. You can make your bathroom look like a relaxing, sandy dune scene by keeping a neutral color scheme throughout.

VeinCut Dune shower walls nod to sandy beaches with smooth lines and shades of tan. Other organic details like a woven rug, wooden stool and textured flooring infuse beachy vibes while still looking elegant.

If the ocean is calling your name, opt for a bold, sea-inspired bathroom with Cintilante Bluette shower walls.

Farmhouse Bathroom Inspiration

Recently, more and more travelers have traded in their traditional vacations for a farm stay. Turn your bathroom into a modern farmhouse retreat, where simple charm meets utilitarian sophistication.

Staying true to their rustic roots, farmhouse bathrooms favor a minimalist, earthy color palette. Biscuit shower walls warm up the space with a hint of yellow. This very soft color is at home with contemporary as well as traditional and country settings. Try pairing with dark earth tones for a modern contrast.

Beyond a neutral color scheme, shiplap paneling adds architectural interest to your bathroom walls and plays up the farmhouse look.

Hotel-Inspired Bathroom Ideas

A major bonus of traveling is getting to stay in first-class hotels, where the bathroom is often the defining feature. When you return home, bring that level of luxury into your own hotel-inspired bathroom with a few sleek updates.

It’s easy to see the classic, clean appeal of a white bathroom. That’s why it’s found in many luxury hotels. In your home, you can put a modern twist on this timeless bathroom design by using soft, soothing neutrals throughout the space. Ice Grey shower walls paired with Matte Black fixtures and hardware create high contrast for an ultra-modern look.

Many hotels also feature tech accessories to bring you a state-of-the-art spa experience right in your suite. With a digital shower system, you can customize your shower settings with the touch of a button. This is especially great if you have multiple shower sprays such as rain heads and body sprays.
